LED tail lights

Has anybody out there installed led tail lights on their zx3? If so, any problems? Do you like the look and function (are they bright enough) of the light? Would you list the pros and cons.

Hey All. Just ran across this notification at http://www.lightlens.com/coloredbulbs.htm
Just FYI: Might want to be careful where your buying them at.

Automotive News - AFTERMARKET L.E.D. TAILLIGHTS 40% DEFECTIVE IN 3 MONTHS... Aftermarket L.E.D. taillights manufacturer sued for defective L.E.D. taillights and illegal conduct. A lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Sept. 4, 2008 (case no. BC394618). The lawsuit alleges over 40% of the aftermarket L.E.D. taillights shipped to online retail customers were defective in the box or within 3 months of installation. The allegations of defective L.E.D. taillights are based on a conclusive customer satisfaction survey in which online retail customers reported more than 40% of the L.E.D. taillights they received were defective in the box or within 3 months of installation.

Those look nice PURO LATINO 8-D

LED's are coming on for sure. But most of them are going to be junk imo. They use cheap off-the-shelf LED's and drive the crap out them to get the brightness, which of course means there going to burn out fast. I saw the backside of one set and there was not a hint of current limiting or voltage control. Just waiting for the complaints to start rolling.
